It’s My Birthday … and I’m giving away books

Thursday, 22 March 2012  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

It’s my 2nd annual birthday giveaway! I’m giving some books away to a few lucky followers. Names will be selected from both my followers list and my Networked Blogs list. I won’t bore you with a bunch of nonsense, so let’s get to the winners.
First winner by Random.org is …
 Sharon Bayliss

And she wins…


Girl Parts by John M. Cusick is a fun read. I couldn’t put it down. He did a wonderful job at making me care for a girl companion (a robot for boys to learn about relationships). 
Check out this review (because she says it better than me in an accent – except for the bit about the cover – I LOVE the cover)
The next winner is…

Juliana Haygert
And she wins …
By Lauren Hammond 
I chose this book because it’s written by my most wonderful agent Lauren Hammond. I love her writing and how she’s pushed me to be a better writer.
Love Sucks by Lauren Hammond whisks you from the seventeen hundreds to present time with Cara the last of the vampires who sets out on a journey to find her soul mate, the one person who is designed for her, but will he give up everything he knows to be with Cara? Or will she wander the earth for the rest of eternity alone?
Check out the trailer…

And the next winner is …
 Christina Mercer
And she wins… 
I chose this one because the fabulous agent, Louise Fury, with L. Perkins represents the author, Jennifer Safrey. Louise was so kind to participate in our Pitch Madness after a long long airplane ride from Africa. This is a book I can’t wait to read! Actually, I’m buying it for myself, as well.
About the book: Gemma Fae Cross, a tough-girl amateur boxer whose fiance is running for congress, has just made a startling discovery about herself. She is half faerie – and not just any faerie, but a tooth faerie A hybrid of fae and human, Gemma is destined to defend the Olde Way and protect the fae – who are incapable of committing violence – from threats to their peaceful and idyllic way of life, which must be maintained by distilling innocence collected from children”s baby teeth. But when a threat to the fae mission emerges, Gemma is called upon to protect her heritage, and become a legendary fae warrior… even if it means sacrificing everything she knows about being human.
And our final winner is …
Eric Steinberg 
And he wins …
I chose The Fault In Our Stars by John Green because I can’t wait to read it! 
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
Winners please email me at brenleedrake(at)gmail(dot)com and tell me if you want a book or Kindle ebook or, if it’s available at Barns & Noble for Nook, that.
Thanks for celebrating my birthday with me! Come back Monday, March 26 for the first round of critiques for the After The Madness Workshop
